MEA on the Sunflower podcast

Russell Fleming, Head of Communications for The ME Association, was a guest on the Sunflower hidden disabilities charity podcast.

The Sunflower Conversations deliver a deeper understanding of the Sunflower's role in supporting people with hidden disabilities. The topics are often personal and explore hidden disabilities through the prism of the Sunflower with guests hosted by members of the HIdden Disabilities Sunflower team.


Russell joins us from the ME Association to discuss Myalgic Encephalopathy and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), including what it is, and how it affects people.

ME/CFS is a chronic, complex, multisystem disease that can produce a wide-range of disabling symptoms, dramatically impacting a person's ability to initiate or complete everyday tasks and to mobilise normally.

We also talk about the similarities between ME and Long Covid.

Russell shares his health journey with ME and his progress over the past 23 years. The conversation is full of insightful information for support and clinical pathways.
